This Friday is Black Friday, the biggest Christmas shopping day of the year. Are you buying anything for yourself?
No, but if a financial semi-miracle were to happen between now and the end of the year, I'd be all over the after-Christmas sales.
I fell in the driveway before leaving, badly bruising my hip and wrenching my arm. Then was stuck at my husband's ex-job (picked up his last paycheck) for over an hour. It snowed see, and my tires are bald. I had to shovel myself out with a plastic cup...then I braved the masses of confused old peopel and crazed shoppers. (why IS christmas about giving people things you cant afford?) I found that many of the things on my grocery list were sold out, and many others the price had risen so I could not buy them. I am thankfull for the times I can buy the thigns for my children that they need. Whats this about buying myself something? I have a good friend who is a single mother of three, and she recently lost her job. If I get any spare pennies, I will most certianly be buying her some chocolates.
ps, I hate black friday
Guilty as charged... Haha, the deals are so great, and if I see something I really want at a really good price, I have been known to buy myself something nice!! (Or I buy it and try to sell it to a family member to give me as a gift!)

Who invented the term "Black Friday"? And, is it just me or does the holiday season in the stores come earlier and earlier?

Is Black Friday now "Black Thursday" in your area? Will you start your shopping on Thanksgiving?Lots of stores are now open on Thanksgiving to start their Black Friday savings even earlier. Do you agree with stores being open on Thanksgiving, and will you be shopping?
